The Xiaomi Mi A1 is equipped with the clean Android One. That means an Android experience as intended by Google and quick updates. It also means that the Mi A1 is currently one of the few budget phones with Android 8.0 Oreo on it. Good thing.
The design of the Xiaomi Mi A1 is not very inspirational. The device looks rather like a OnePlus 5 from behind. The front is characterized by a large screen with large edges as well. it does have a sturdy and solid metal unibody. That feels good. The fingerprint scanner sits on a logical place at the back and works well. The Mi A1 is equipped with a USB c port on the bottom and has its speaker there as well.
The Mi A1 has a 5.5 inch full HD screen that uses IPS technology. That means in any case that the screen is sufficiently sharp enough. The quality of the screen is more than sufficient,
Inside the Xiaomi Mi A1 an eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset is ticking at 2GHz. The chip has been running for a while and is characterized in particular by its efficient use of energy. Fortunately that does not mean that he is slow. In fact, in the class of the Mi A1 it is one of the faster chipsets, which is also coupled with a large 4GB Ram and 32GB of internal Memory.

The real asset of the Mi A1 is of course that Android One software. It helps with the good performance, ensures that the smartphone is always up-to-date and is simply very pleasant to use. Especially if you compare it with typical Chinese Android peels such as Xiaomi’s MIUI or Huawei’s EMUI.
Xiaomi advertises firmly with the camera of the Mi A1. This is mainly due to the second lens he has, which gives him more flexibility than the cameras of most budget smartphones. Just like the first camera, the second camera is a 12-megapixel camera, but this time with a telephoto lens in front of it. So you can zoom in 2x with minimal quality loss, which is a very useful extra. At the time of the videos, Mi A1 can record in 4K at 30 frames per second. The quality of the image is good, but a stabilization system ends up lacking. One thing you have to be careful of is the position of the microphone, which is on the bottom of the phone. it has 5 MP and f / 2.0 aperture. The quality comes out acceptable in bright surroundings, but it’s just OK.
It has 3,080 mAh, which is not exactly little, In practice, the device can only withstand a full day away from the power outlet if you use it moderately, without spending much time playing, watching videos or taking pictures. More intensive users, as in my case, will have to walk with the charger out there. Speaking of which, the Mi A1 takes about 1 hour and 50 minutes to go from zero to 100%. The rear digital sensor is in an intuitive position that is easy to reach.
The firepower is good, the cameras are decent, the internal space is great, and pure and upgraded Android quickly is a very advantageous point. Xiaomi Mi A1 is now available on IBuyGou.com Just at $169.99/€144.83 using Coupon Code: GERC004.
